Kurtz's Latest Publication Examines Total Energy System

October 20, 2021

Professor Sarah Kurtz has a new publication in Joule titled “Cross-sector Storage and Modeling Needed for Deep Decarbonization.” Funded by the California Energy Commission and performed in conjunction with the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, this paper discusses the importance of modeling the total energy system including how wind and solar electricity can be used to generate hydrogen that, in turn, is used in other energy sectors. This macro approach, rather than focusing on electricity only, stimulates innovation to identify cross-sector options to achieve energy system decarbonization.
